A co-write with David Snyder.
Don't let a hurricane go to waste...


I LOVE YOU WHEN IT RAINS

you and me behind the barn
storm clouds on the way
hear that thunder
bring it on, i pray
we kiss... it's lightning
those first drops begin to fall
i've got you right where i want you, girl
my back against the wall

   i love you when it rains
   a river flowing through your hair
   seeing you drenched in that old t shirt
   i bought you at the fair
   don't mind a sunny day
   but making love this way
   you drive me crazy insane
   god... i love you when it rains

kiss your neck, kiss your nose
kiss your body from your head to your toes
girl, my love
grows and grows and grows
tell me what you want
should we run for cover, safe, inside
or we can do it all right here
whatever you decide

   i love you when it rains
   a river flowing through your hair
   seeing you drenched in that old t shirt
   i bought you at the fair
   don't mind a sunny day
   but making love this way
   you drive me crazy insane
   god... i love you when it rains

let the heavens open wide
let it rain
let it rain
let it rain

   i love you when it rains
   a river flowing through your hair
   seeing you drenched in that old t shirt
   i bought you at the fair
   don't mind a sunny day
   but making love this way
   you drive me crazy insane
   god... i love you when it rains

Nice work... really good dynamics between the verses and chorus. The only thing missing is a soaring guitar solo.....

Good work on the collab

A beautiful soar to the melody on the chorus made the best of by the fine vocal - my favourite of your collaborations so far!
I could also hear a guitar solo in there... maybe David Lindley style slide.

David and Floyd,

Just one word pops into mind when I listen to this:
"this is radio ready!"
Definitely your best collab so far.

ALERT, ALERT!! Apparently Bruce Springsteen is auditioning new songs on our forum under the pseudonyms Floyd Jane and David Snyder!! Seriously guys, this is fantastic!!! Chorus is magical. And Floyd, who always delivers a strong vocal knocked this one out of the park. Love the song, love the arrangement, love the vocal, and LOVE THE CHORUS!! A real treat to listen to. AWESOME!!! Take care. Greg

Adding a solo would make this too long... there is "soaring" in the bridge...more (from a solo) would get to be too much...

HI Guys.

Another classic track and professional in every respect.

I was going to go with Herb about the solo, but maybe you're right? If it was up to me, I'd have found room for some unobtrusive lead guitar ornamentation in the spaces during the last chorus - just trying it out now as the track is playing. Maybe it's not so easy to do with RTs.

Anyway, loved it as it is.

Cheers, ROG.

f&D, This is the sound of modern country. That steel is a great real track! The drums are absolutely killer! Top notch lyrics and arrangement as well as vocals. A brilliant collab and it's good to see you are both drinking the same kool-aid. Loved everything about this. Tom

This one deserves a lot of replays, there's like a great sweet spot when then song reaches the title line. The melody and the chords just open up and soar. I agree with all that's being said here, except no solo needed. This is a learning opportunity for me, great
skills at work here.

Nice collaboration! Modern country at it's best in my opinion.

P.S. Floyd, I noticed in the song description that you are using loops from Drums on Demand. If you don't mind my asking, are you using BIAB to add these loops to the song, or do you use your DAW and add them after the fact?

(I am so out of the loop when it comes to this stuff, pardon the pun :P)

Great write, Floyd and David.

I love the muted electric guitar--it really locks in the groove.

Wow! This is so well done. I always like your work, Floyd, but I think this is probably the best I have heard from you. The production is superb, and this one sounds like it was just made for your voice. You and David are really on a roll!

Great work from both of you!

floyd and David,

I like the lyrics, whoever wrote them,
Quote:
we kiss... it's lightning
brilliant
and your vocals, floyd, were excellent!
I really enjoyed that and so gave the neighbours a treat yesterday! Volume at 11 and doors wide open, No complaints so far grin Amazingly, as I live in the middle of a town, a couple of Herons dropped in for a rest during the 2nd play of the song so even the local wildlife appreciates your music grin

The story in the lyrics will be re-enacted in town this week, not by me ...too old frown , as it is Fair Week and, as usual, it is raining and a bit windy, no where near a hurricane tho' thankfully.



thoroughly enjoyed

thanks for sharing
Alyn

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first?

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
